The Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners Ms. Guo Meijie and Mr. Cheng Ming of Inner Mongolia

On August 9th, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Guo Meijie and Mr. Cheng Ming, who worked part-time in the Daqi District of E'erduosi City, Inner Mongolia Province, were arrested by more than 30 policemen from the local police station. Their home was ransacked. Their equipment, which was valued at ten thousand yuan1 and included a laptop and printer, was confiscated.

In order to expose the persecution, they delivered leaflets to thousands of homes to the people who were deceived and harmed by the Chinese Communist Party's lies. This activity generated a big impact locally. The 610 Office2 and the Public Security Bureau assigned a massive police contingent to investigate and follow them day and night. The units participating in this illegal capture included the Patrols Police Group of Daqi District, the Criminal Police Group, and the National Security Group.

Ms. Guo and Mr. Cheng were imprisoned in the Patrols Police Group for four days. Over those four days, the police brutally tortured them. They were seriously beaten, tied to a chair to be shocked with high-voltage electricity, and deprived of sleep for days. The police took turns monitoring them. If their eyes closed even a bit, they were beaten on the head with a post. Many police officers tried to deceive them by saying that they also practised Falun Gong. The officers not only bombarded them with brainwashing information but also harassed and threatened them. The practitioners were even told that if they would turn over a couple thousand "yuan", they would be released to go home and visit their family. However, they refused to compromise at all.

Therefore, both of them were transferred to and jailed in the Daqi District detention centre. At the entrance and in the courtyard of the detention centre, they spoke out fearlessly. In the detention centre, they refused to cooperate. They refused to sign the detention card or arrest card, to follow any of the regulations that "criminals" should follow, to wear criminal uniforms, to memorise the centre's regulations, to respond to roll-calls, to count off, or to sing songs. They insisted on reciting the Falun Gong books and practising Falun Gong and were never moved by the harassments and threats. When Ms. Guo was on a hunger strike, the guards force-fed her many times, which made her lose consciousness. The fee for an electrocardiogram administered while she was in detention was deducted from the money that her family sent for her living expenses. Her family members travelled from Baotuo City to the Daqi detention centre many times to try to visit her. However, they were always rejected with no reason.

Currently both of the practitioners are facing fabricated charges. Their cases have been sent to the prosecutor, and they could be sentenced to prison.
